You Gotta Climb

You gotta climb to scale the mountain

You gotta climb to reach the top

          G                C
You gotta climb to see the splendor

          D7                          G
You gotta climb climb climb don't you stop

Well the path is steep where it leads upward

The way is rough narrow too

But every step brings you higher

Until that mountain peak will come in view

Don't you give up cause you're weary

You can't expect an easy way

Downward path leads to nowhere

you gotta climb climb climb everyday

When you arrive at top of your mountain

You'll be glad that you struggled on

If you have all your gold around you

The struggle of the climb all gone
